Preview: Stand Up for Street Child Benefit, Cambridge Theatre

I don't know how this upcoming unmissable gig passed me by until now.

The line-up for Stand Up For Street Child on May 9 at the Cambridge Theatre reads like a class register of some of my favourites acts. If you've got shred of comedy taste they should be some of your favourites too. Daniel Kitson, Stewart Lee, Josie Long, Elis James, Isy Suttie, Kevin Eldon and Nick Helm barely need an introduction, but here you go.

He will be doing A Show For Christmas at the Conelly Theatre in the East Village. In 2014 he performed the show in the Grand Hall at the Battersea Arts Centre.

Edinburgh Fringe Review: Polyphony by Daniel Kitson, Roundabout @ Summerhall


This picture here is not from the show. It’s what I saw at the entrance to Summerhall. And there was a big queue behind this fan too, all hoping for a spare ticket so that they could sneak into Daniel Kitson’s latest piece of meta-theatre. There were no press tickets issued either, but I was lucky enough to be offered one via a friend. I grabbed it with both hands and held it tightly.

News: Daniel Kitson Announces Major London Gig

Daniel Kitson is to play a one-off gig with musician Gavin Osborn at Regent's Park Open Air Theatre on July 5. 

This will not be his latest show Polyphony, which he will be performing in Edinburgh in August, but will be a version of “Stories for the Starlit Sky”, the trilogy they performed in three separate shows at the same venue in 2009 and then at Latitude. Though Kitson is not quite sure yet of the nitty gritty as this is a last-minute arrangement filling a hole in the theatre's schedule.

Opinion: How To Get Your Edinburgh Show Reviewed

A lot has been said recently in comedy circles about Chortle’s announcement that it promises to review any Edinburgh Fringe show that spends at least £250 on advertising. This happened to coincide with people asking me how I go about choosing what shows to review during the Festival.
